Their hard work will continue to be integral to our ability to deliver superior work and expand the top-notch economic consulting services that the firm offers.”

Ales (Bobby) Filipi has broad research and consulting experience in the fields of microeconomics and industrial organization. He leads economic analyses in large antitrust matters involving allegations of collusion and monopolization. Dr. Filipi’s work includes the application of economic principles to assess the possibility and likelihood of anticompetitive conduct. He also has extensive experience applying empirical methods to determine whether anticompetitive conduct occurred and to measure its impact.

Nicholas Hill is an expert in antitrust issues and has worked on matters in a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, chemicals, airlines, health insurance, banking, paper, milk, beer, and pharmaceuticals. He has served as an economic expert for private clients, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Trade Commission. He developed a capacity closure model that is now often used by the agencies and practitioners to analyze mergers in commodity industries with high fixed costs of production.
